Many years ago I started developing a Breakout clone in Java. As Apple distanced themselves more and more from Java, I got discouraged with the whole project and it's been sitting abandoned on my computer ever since. I don't know the current state of Java on MacOSX since I've been out of the loop the last few years, but the development version of the game seems to run just fine on my 2012 Macbook Pro at least.
I've uploaded the game here: http://antell.com/so.../triplezero.zip
If anyone is interested feel free to check it out. It's not complete, but fairly playable, and you have an almost unlimited amount of lives too so it's harder to lose than to win... If anyone want me to continue developing it, I might dust it off again and go back to work on it...

By the way, Triple Zero works great on my Mac Pro.

Lucky for me the place was swarming with the giant wasps of Lh'owon. Occationally they would defecate into the hole, and a plan was soon set in motion. I started eating all the feces I could get my hands on to stay alive. I, in turn started defecating from eating all the crap, and soon a floor of manure was forming under me pushing me upwards, towards my so long desired freedom. I was however making slow progress, and days turned to weeks, weeks turned to months etc.
But as luck would have it, larger creatures started moving into the neighbourhood, and bigger crap was coming my way. One lucky day even a Drinniol dropped a 20 pound deuce right in my hopefull face. After years of only eating turd I was finally above those dreaded 0.3 world units and could walk away from an experience that will forever leave scars on my tastebuds... anyway, thanks for the feedback

To be sure, you didn't finish the level editor, the high score screen or add the main menu "How To Play" and "Quit" functions. Right? Cause that's not working for me. Also I'd like to meet Sara Hotpants. Set that up for me please and I'll give you a pinocchio-nosed apology for that whole suicide trap... thingy.

The high score screen is more or less done, but since you can't really lose you're never promted with the high score screen.
"How To Play" and "Quit" does nothing. If you want to quit, you have to "cmd-Q" out of the game or press "esc", or force quit the game, or pull the power cord...
Lastly, Sara Hotpants does not exist, it's just an alter ego of mine... yes I sometimes dress up as a woman when I play. What can I say, I look really good in a skirt.
